150 Years of Tradition at Syracuse University: A Digital Exhibition
In celebration of Syracuse University’s sesquicentennial, Syracuse University Libraries’ Special Collections Research Center has produced “150 Years of Tradition at Syracuse University: A Digital Exhibition.” The online exhibition mirrors the physical exhibition on the sixth floor of Bird Library, which is on display through June 2020. Both exhibitions include audio materials from the University Archives.
“We are excited to share the University’s rich history with alumni and friends of the University near and far,” says David Seaman, University librarian and dean of Syracuse University Libraries. “Digital exhibitions enable access to those who may not be on campus. It’s also an opportunity to document and share information with researchers globally in a way that is organized and easy to access.”
Contents in the digital exhibition include:
- Hallmarks of a University
- The Legacy of 44
- Songs of Syracuse
- Reconnecting and Reminiscing
- Celebrating the University Community
- First-Year Student Traditions
- Ceremony and Splendor
- Rooted in the Past
- Orange Spirit
